    If this is accurate, I'm going to be incredibly bummed. Hah. Mostly because some of those acts would just feel like wasted space to me. Body Count and Pennywise are cool, but if I'm being real about it? They feel more like "filler" for me as far as a live set goes. And I really couldn't care less about seeing the Dwarves or the Adicts. I'd still be able to have fun, but I really am hoping that when the line-up drops it feels more "90s punk" than "old punk dude punk."

    Personal taste and aspirations aside, though, it feels reasonable. Although, per usual with most of these faux line-ups, some of the placement feels off to me (e.g., the Melvins would be below Bayside, Circle Jerks above Body Count).

    over all this persons own additions dont do too much for me either. Go-gos and mr bungle would be the 2 exciting gets. all the classic punk of social D, the damned, dead boys, adicts, melvins, and dwarves would be nice for people to check off their lists if they havent already. Deftones and offspring are always great, but they are both road dogs so seen them both a ton already

    Offspring hasn't played my state since 1995, so I'd be fine with finally seeing them @ Riot lol

    Theoretically, I think that person was ticking that box with the Offspring, Pennywise, and the Flatliners.

    I'm still holding out hope that we see a few Fat Wreck-style skate punk, pop-punk, and/or hardcore (or whatever the hell you want to call it) type bands in the mix for 2021. I am almost positive that 2020 was going to have a bunch (likely in place of a midwest Punk in Drublic date).

    But who knows now? I would assume at least a few of the bands Fat released albums from in 2020 are going to pop-up on the 2021 festival circuit. I think the Suicide Machines, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and Get Dead are all pretty likely. I could see Get Dead opening what will inevitably be the "ska" stage the day that Fishbone, Hepcat, and Sublime with Rome play.

    I wonder if having 2020 effectively be cancelled will change whether we might get some of the 2019 bands back in the mix. Because that year was definitely heavy on the "90s sounding punk and hardcore."

    I just really hope we can start steering away from the "old dude" punk shit. I get it. It's important. But if an early day main stage or later day side-stage slot goes to the fucking Adicts or Neighborhood Brats instead of a newer, hungrier band that could effectively use that exposure? That'd be kind of a bummer for me.

    The Go-Go's and the Psychedelic Furs would both be awesome adds. And I'd be all in on Danny Brown, Japandroids, the Damned, Charly Bliss, the Menzingers, and the Flatliners. But I don't really need anything else on there. Hah. The Offspring and Social D are fun but, I dunno... Do I really need another 50-minute Social D set of which 10 minutes is "Ball & Chain," another 10 minutes is "Story Of My Life," and the remaining 30 is basically Mike Ness talking about how times have changed?

    Hi, Friend

    It’s been awhile since they’ve played Riot, yeah? Wasn’t the last one they played 2014? Seems like they’re due for a return

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    I won one of those Riot Fest vinyl contests once. I ended up selling the turntable and every record I got in a Facebook merch group and buying different records, it was awesome.

    Belated congrats on that!

    That's kinda my hope. Winning and selling the records I don't want, hah.
